June 24, 2015

Dakar, 23 June 2015:   At the annual Joint Portfolio Review between the Government of Senegal and the U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID) held June 23, U.S. Ambassador to Senegal James P. Zumwalt hailed “the dynamic and sustained collaboration” between the two countries.

This yearly exercise closely examines implementation of USAID’s $119 million portfolio of projects in the areas of Health, Agriculture, Education, and Good governance to take stock of lessons learned and plan for activities in future years.

In his opening remarks, Ambassador Zumwalt hailed the “dynamic and sustained collaboration between USAID and the Government of Senegal” he’s seen since arriving in Dakar, and pledged to “strengthen our commitment” to improve the health and food security of families, get more children in school and reading earlier, and providing opportunities to Senegal’s work force.

USAID/Senegal’s health program is conceptualized as a "pirogue" representing elements of the health system. The body of the pirogue – USAID’s health system strengthening component - supports USAID’s community health, service delivery, and HIV/AIDS and TB activities while being powered by the ―motor‖ of the President’s Malaria Initiative. The pirogue’s ―umbrella‖ covers USAID’s health promotion and behavior change activities.

Senegal has a reputation of being one of the few stable democracies in West Africa. This perception was confirmed by the recent 2012 elections marked by the third peaceful transition of power from one president to the other – two of which took place following credible democratic elections.
